As we welcome new students to campus we often receive inquires from parents who are used to having access to their child’s educational information. According to FERPA when a student begins attending a postsecondary institution regardless of age, FERPA rights transfer to the student. While parents understandably have an interest in their student’s academic success and progress, we are only permitted to provide them with directory information unless a signed consent from their student is obtained. WMU has designated the following items as directory information:
Students have the option of setting up Authorized User Access through GoWMU to grant third party individuals the ability to view certain academic, financial aid and account information. This does not allow faculty or staff to release information, but it does provide an avenue for students to give their parents access to select information on-line.
There is a lot more to see! Visit some of our friends at WMU to learn about academics, costs of attendance, and campus life.
